Warnings against the Dajjal
THE HADITH OF AL-NUWAS IBN SAM'AN AL-KILABI
Al-Nuwas ibn Saman said, "One morning the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa
sallam) spoke about the Dajjal. Sometimes he described him as
insignificant, and sometimes he described him as so dangerous that we
thought he was in the clump of date-palms nearby. When we went to him
later on, he noticed that fear in our faces, and asked, 'What is the
matter with you? We said, 'O Messenger of Allah, this morning you spoke of
the Dajjal; sometimes you described him as insignificant, and sometimes
you described him as being so dangerous that we thought he was in the
clump of date-palms nearby.
"The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said, 'I fear for you in other
matters besides the Dajjal. If he appears whilst I am among you, I will
contend with him on your behalf. But if he appears while I am not among
you, then each man must contend with him on his own behalf, and Allah will
take care of every Muslim on my behalf. The Dajjal will be a young man,
with short, curly hair, and one eye floating. I would liken him to 'Abd
al-Uzza ibn Qatan. Whoever amongst you lives to see him should recite the
opening Ayat of Surat al-Kahf. He will appear on the way between Syria and
Iraq, and will create disaster left and right. O servants of Allah, adhere
to the Path of Truth."
"We said, 'O Messenger of Allah, for the day which is like a year, will
one days prayers be sufficient? He said, 'No, you must make an estimate of
the time, and then observe the prayers."
"We asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, how quickly will he walk upon the earth?
He said, 'Like a cloud driven by the wind. He will come to the people and
call them (to a false religion), and they will believe in him and respond
to him. He will issue a command to the sky, and it will rain; and to the
earth, and it will produce crops. After grazing on these crops, their
animals will return with their udders full of milk and their flanks
stretched. Then he will come to another people and will call them (to a
false religion), but they will reject his call. He will depart from them;
they will suffer famine and will possess nothing in the form of wealth.
Then he will pass through the wasteland and will say, 'Bring forth your
treasures, and the treasures will come forth, like swarms of bees. Then he
will call a man brimming with youth; he will strike him with a sword and
cut him in two, then place the two pieces at the distance between an
archer and his target. Then he will call him, and the young man will come
running and laughing."
"At that point, Allah will send the Messiah, son of Mary, and he will
descend to the white minaret in the east of Damascus, wearing two garments
dyed with saffron, placing his hands on the wings of two angels. When he
lowers his head, beads of perspiration will fall from it, and when he
raises his head, beads like pearls will scatter from it. Every Kafir who
smells his fragrance will die, and his breath will reach as far as he can
see. He will search for the Dajjal until he finds him at the gate of
Ludd*, where he will kill him."
"Then a people whom Allah has protected will come to Jesus son of Mary,
and he will wipe their faces (ie wipe the traces of hardship from their
faces) and tell them of their status in Paradise. At that time Allah will
reveal to Jesus: "I have brought forth some of My servants whom no-one
will be able to fight. Take My servants safely to al-Tur."
"Then Allah will send Gog and Magog, and they will swarm down from every
slope. The first of them will pass by the Lake of Tiberias, and will drink
some of its water; the last of them will pass by it and say, "There used
to be water here." Jesus, the Prophet of Allah, and his Companions will be
besieged until a bull's head will be dearer to them than one hundred
dinars are to you nowadays."
"Then Jesus and his Companions will pray to Allah, and He will send
insects who will bite the people of Gog and Magog on their necks, so that
in the morning they will all perish as one. Then Jesus and his Companions
will come down and will not find any nook or cranny on earth which is free
from their putrid stench. Jesus and his Companions will again pray to
Allah, Who will send birds like the necks of camels; they will seize the
bodies of Gog and Magog and throw them wherever Allah wills. Then Allah
will send rain which no house or tent will be able to keep out, and the
earth will be cleansed, until it will look like a mirror. Then the earth
will be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing. On that
day, a group of people will be able to eat from a single pomegranate and
seek shelter under its skin (ie the fruit would be so big). A milch camel
will give so much milk that a whole party will be able to drink from it; a
cow will give so much milk that a whole tribe will be able to drink from
it; and a milch-sheep will give so much milk that a whole family will be
able to drink from it. At that time, Allah will send a pleasant wind which
will soothe them even under their armpits, and will take the soul of every
Muslim. Only the most wicked people will be left, and they will fornicate
like asses; then the Last Hour will come upon them." (Muslim)
